Got Stuck? – Scott’s Sales Yoga Thought for the Day

Over the years there have been lots of “Got” campaigns, one of the most famous being “Got milk?” In selling, when we get stuck, it seems far from being a pleasant experience like a mustache from a tall, cold glass of milk.

Stop Training, Start Learning

You may find this commentary odd coming from a guy referred to, at times, as a trainer. While it’s true that I teach leaders and some staff, in addition to my consulting work, I’m an educator, not a trainer, as I don’t work with animals.

Education, done well and done right, is not training. Training works for animals because of the repetitive nature of the act of getting a lion or a killer whale to perform a task for a reward. Humans, while they benefit from repetition and…

Uncommon vs. Commodity

When you can do a common thing in an uncommon way, you will command the attention of the world.” – George Washington Carver

What Staffing can learn from the Drafting of Russell Wilson

Russell Wilson in 2012 was a 3rd round draft pick for the Seattle Seahawks, who was told he was too short, to slow, and did not have a strong enough arm to be a starting QB in the NFL. He was projected as a career backup at best. Today he is a top 10 Super Bowl winning QB. The question…

More than 70% of current and prospective buyers see you as a necessary evil. Some, such as those in HR and procurement, use stronger language, calling recruiters “scum sucking pig dogs” or admitting they engage staffing firms only for “problematic use” (yes, these are real quotes from buyers).

How is it that an…

The best ever follow-up interview question: “How did you come up with the idea?"

I’m working on a blog post on job interviews — from the employer side of the desk. After all, there are thousands of “how-to” articles, blog posts, and advice on “acing the interview” from a candidates viewpoint.

The Most Important Question for Sales Leaders – Scott’s Sales Yoga Thought for the Day

Sales leaders often spend generous quantities of time reviewing progress, running meetings, and responding to emails. The most critical task, regularly revisiting the most important question, is often overlooked or completely neglected.
